against richard nixon. he didn't know how to pull it off. he a lot of money behind him. nixon had the whole place so buttoned up. the most understanding moment at the convention was the announcement that his vice presidential candidate would be spiro agnew. i remember the bureau chief in baltimore, washington, looking like he had been electric shocked, that this guy was going to be the vice president. one heartbeat away from the presidency. they went out of there and put together the new republican coalition. which is that they took the south away from the democrats. and they -- richard nixon was very clever about capitalizing on what he called the silent majority, which really did exist, these were working-class democrats, who wore hard hats and carried lunch buckets, who fed up with what they were seeing on the democratic side. when i went home from chicago to my home in south dakota on my way back to california, my dad was a life-long working-class democrat. a blue dog democrat. he wore a hard hat. carried a lunchbox. he grew up under fdr, that was his god. >> i thought he woul

four years later was richard nixon who won the presidency. this old and loyal republican surely helped nixon's campaign, too. and then this loyal republican must have missed his newspaper delivery the day john mitchell was indicted for perjury. and he must have missed the delivery when john mitchell was convicted in federal court and sentenced to prison and served that sentence. john mitchell was steeped in filthy politics before he became nixon's attorney general. john mitchell was nixon's campaign manager and he became the first attorney general in the history of the united states to be convicted of a crime. but he was not the last. the next attorney general to be convicted of a crime was the very next man richard nixon made attorney general of the united states. so we've had exactly two attorneys general convicted of crimes, both of them republicans. both of them appointed by richard nixon. the man at the romney fundraiser who says he worked on barry goldwater's campaign may very well have known john mitchell, may very well have known both of the republican attorneys general who wer

victory for president lyndon johnson, richard nixon got a landslide victory in 1972, but a landslide democratic majority in the house and senate and let us not forget a supreme court of the united states that was still fairly and the control of liberal democrats. 4 two brief shining years or perhaps baleful years if you don't like the great society but for two years for better or for worse the united states had a government in the way that we often seek of her majesty, having a government that is a group of people who can implement a party platform that can be judged at the next election or serious elections. that is not generally the way the united states operates. courtesy of the constitution drafted in 1787 and what i want to in sister relatively unamended thereafter with regard to the basic structures we live under. the republican president, president johnson, nixon, ford, reagan and george h. w. bush not for a single day had even a single house of congress from their own political party. ronald reagan did have the senate for four years but he never had a full congress that was r

gives you an idea of how much the country has changed in a good way. but, right after richard nixon became president, four vacancies appear on the supreme court. you never know how that will work. jimmy carter was the only proven to serve a full term without having a single nominee. but richard nixon was on the president for five and a half years. you will recall he had to leave early remember. [laughter] but he got for appointments in the supreme court because chief justice warren left, john hollen and hugo black left and they were replaced by richard nixon with chief justice warren burger, harry blackmun, lewis powell and william rehnquist and as you think about that list, it illustrates the scene that i think is a very in part and part of the oath but it is the theme of american politics over the past generation and that is the evolution of the republican party. it is the most important story in american politics. it's the most important story in the supreme court because moderate republicans dominated the supreme court for two generations, and moderate republicans are gone. they
